Re: Was there any backlash to the pedohilic storyline in DBS?

I mean... It's not like he was at all suggestive to the child version of her. They just understood that they shared a bond across time. And on Child Mai's end, yeah, she was definitely smitten, but in the way a tween would be smitten with a popular boyband member, for Kid Trunks to be jealous about,...

Re: Dub Changes That Don't Bother You...that much

Bootenks getting under Gohan's skin using Piccolo and Goten's knowledge, instead of the usual Shônen battle taunts. It added a little spice to the fight without going TOO far off-script. And that chilling "Freeeezaa..." during Freeza's Vietnam Flashback during Trunks' first transformation. It's corn...

Re: Adding the original Budokai OST's into the HD collection (help)

Seems like one of your HD collection is European (hence the multilingual files) and the other is American. B3 is fundamentally identical between regions (save refresh rates), but B1 has quite a few differences between regions, so that's probably why the disparity between files. If that's the case, y...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

An impressionable, impulsive, hormonal teenager with a bloated ego because she's the second strongest person in all of her known universe, has always been itching for a challenging fight, rebelling? What a shocking turn of events! I really don't see why people take issue with Majin Bra. She doesn't ...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

Looking for a specific DBZ poster. I realize these exist by the thousands, but I believe it's an official product. It features the Buu arc cast; Goten is sitting in the middle with his orange gi, with Trunks standing to his right holding the belt to his green gi. Gohan is shown at waist level on the...

Re: Madman DVDs - PAL to NTSC

Surely you can get a TV that can display PAL in the states by now.. ? I think that's besides OP's point; Dragon Ball's native format is NTSC, and he's looking into how to undo the PAL conversion. As for PAL being available in the US... well, you'd be surprised. TVs that support both formats (hell, ...

Re: DBZ custom made DVD/BD - acceptable?

I shouldn't be suprised people are having the same idea.

Re: Is Viz gonna complete the Dragon Ball Z full color manga?

Might be an unpopular opinion, but after purchasing the Spanish Saiyan Arc Full Colors, I feel like the color pages don't add anything significant for me. I prefer the OG black and white with the occasional color pages. That's just me though, not sure I'll continue picking up the Full Colors... Tha...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

The bigger problem is the Androids. They would wreck any Earthling fighter. Well, we do find out pretty early on that U9 Yamcha is their Universe's #17, so maybe we're meant to believe that the Androids are on the good side as far as this world is concerned. We know that Coola eventually encounters...

Differences in FUNimation's movie dub(s)

I've been wanting to find out, are they any differences between between the English track of the FUNimation Movie singles (naturally, after the in-house dub took over at Movie 4) and the "US Music" track found in the Double Feature sets? I know they swapped Kelly's narration for Hebert's for the Spe...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

It's the backstory of the U9 Dragon Team, the one with Kuririn Roshi, Cyborg Yamcha, and Z-Sword Videl. The divergence happens when Coola decides to destroy Goku's space pod instead of leaving it alone like in the main timeline. This prompts Freeza to throw a tantrum about Coola being in his territ...

Re: When Did The "Legendary" Super Saiyan Form Become A Joke?

As soon as the concept of anyone but Goku becoming a Super Saiyan was introduced. Of course, it's understandable it'd be difficult to keep anyone that isn't Goku relevant without this powerup,, so I guess making the Cell arc Saiyans reach the transformation made things easier to write. People point ...

Are there any differences in between the Dub tracks in the FUNimation DB/DBZ movie singles and the Replacement Score Dub tracks in the Double Feature DVD/BD? Like, were there any soundtrack changes or rerecorded lines like in the main series?

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I don't quite know what your analogy means. Care to elaborate. I mean that while the ending renders the mini-arc entirely pointless, it doesn't detract that much from my enjoyment of the quest itself. Kinda like the Future Trunks arc, though a more extreme example, where the highs are much higher a...

I've come to like it more as well, but it is ultimately worthless and boring timewaster. Still has some cool moments like the lake of acid.
Oh yeah, I definitely agree on it being a time waster by the end of it. Let's just say I enjoyed the ride, more so than the landing.

I mean, she's walking through his door uninvited with a gun in her hand. Safe to assume she isn't up to any good.

Martial arts master or not, it's probably best to ambush an armed would-be burglar before any shot could be fired, rather than face them head-on.

Re: Things you wish Toriyama never said (about characters or story)

Pretty much most things pertaining to character origins or backstory that isn't established in the mainline series. It usually ends up contradicting prior (and now with Super) or future information.
